The University of Connecticut School of Engineering and Anglo Educational Services in London have partnered to offer prospective students around the world the opportunity to pursue a Master of Engineering (MEng) in Data Science or Advanced Systems Engineering , combined with an international internship experience in London.

“This is an exceptional value-added option for the otherwise entirely online MENG program. It provides students with experience in a dynamic global setting. Through UConn’s long-standing partner, Anglo Educational Services in London, and potentially other partners in the UK, we will build a portfolio of UK engineering companies where our students can apply the knowledge they they have learned and potentially become long-term contributors to their profession. Having paid internships will definitely increase equitable accessibility to the program for a wider range of students,” said Yuhang Rong, UConn Associate Vice President for Global Affairs.

Starting fall 2022, students will be able to enroll in the experience of a lifetime, combining an in-demand degree with the opportunity to study abroad. Both full-time master’s programs last one year and are taught online by UConn faculty, allowing students to take classes from anywhere in the world. Students enrolled in this program will be taught by UConn faculty and students will receive their MEng degree from the University of Connecticut. During the year, students will have the opportunity to relocate to London for a paid 6-month internship with a London-based company under the credit scheme, allowing them to develop their practical and professional skills.

StudentUniverse, the world’s largest travel marketplace for students, expressed support for the new partnership. Sam Willan, VP, Marketing, “At StudentUniverse, we believe travel teaches things you can’t learn in the classroom, so it’s fantastic to see two great institutions come together like this to create something which will provide a truly unique experience for tomorrow’s technology innovators and leaders. Having worked with AES interns in the past, the insight they can offer to inform our business is invaluable and we look forward to our continued support.”

Steve Lowy, CEO of AES, “This has been a dream of mine and it’s wonderful that we’ve been able to bring it all together. London has a wonderful landscape for learning and also for technology. This is an opportunity for us to work with our partners at UConn Engineering to develop something really cool for students to get a fully immersive learning and working experience.”

Kylene Perras, UConn Assistant Dean of Engineering, “Our engineering programs are world-class, and we are excited to be able to extend this opportunity to the rest of the world. It will be a great experience for students in this new program to immerse themselves in a booming career field, while learning about one of the greatest cities in the world.
